Meet the Author


Robert Gibbons’s work transcends genres. Living body writing, what difference, if Truth comes out? And gives readers pleasure. Both Guy Davenport and Marjorie Perloff compared his work to Rimbaud’s. Sam Hamill wrote, “Anyone familiar with Thelonius Monk’s music cannot help but feel the quirky syncopations of Gibbons’ mind fitting perfectly with those of the pianist.” At sixty-five years old, he’s still walking around the waterfront taking in the world, or at the desk in the back room writing, often peering underneath for the Feminine, the Voice of Silence, image of the Hidden, embodiment of Beauty, signature of Peace, source of Love, and so on.
